    Exclamation my programs- Card and CardTest

    hi,

    i'm writing a program called Card and its tester, CardTest. i find it very difficult to handle the input from the user in between these two programs.

    CardTest reads in a card value in such a format: 4S (meaning 4 of spades)

    in my Card class, there is a method called getDescription() that returns a String variable with the value of the card.

    so, in my Card class, there are a number of important things, notably:

    the constructor
    public Card()
    {
      String value, suit;
    }
    and the method
    public String getDescription()
    {
    sdkfa;dsjf i can figure out most of the logic
    }
    in CardTest,
    i can say
    String cardName = in.nextString(); //the variable to hold the user inputed card
    Card card = new Card(System.in);
    card.getDescription(cardName) <-------
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    is this the right way to send the user input into the method??? i'm very confused. if not, how can i send user input into the method getDescription?

    by the way, this does have to be done in separate classes..

    You need to declare the method signature to take in parameters before passing them.

    public Card(String cardName)
    {
         // constructor code
    }

    okay, i got it. the last thing is a logic error with the program. i don't know what to put inside the constructor... does it just allow me to make an object in the CardTest class?
